FLAGSTAFF, AZ (CBS5) -

Flagstaff police are looking for suspects behind two separate wildfires that were quickly extinguished.

Firefighters discovered a wildfire Friday morning burning on a slope in the area of N. Izabel Street and E. Sixth Avenue along the Flagstaff Urban Trail System.

Three juveniles were seen in the area just before the fire was reported, authorities said.

The second fire was reported Saturday morning in a wooded area behind Little America.

Three transients reported waking up and finding the fire burning around their campsite, firefighters said. Most of their personal property was destroyed. 

One transient suffered minor burns to his foot as he tried to extinguish the fire.

Both fires were turned over to the Flagstaff Police Department.
